PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – Surfing in Plano?
Yes, you read that right. But at this spot, there’s no ocean required! Taryn Jones visited City Surf Fitness in Plano, where they are combining full body workouts with surfboards.
“This is such a cool workout because it has a component you don’t get everywhere else,” explained London Fish, owner of the Plano location. “You are balancing on a surfboard while you are doing everything you can do on the floor.”
This out-of-the-box — or rather, on-the-board — idea is a great way to shake up your fitness routine.
Pros are welcome, but you don’t have to be an expert to jump on a board. The trainers at City Surf Fitness will gear you up to get in shape, even if you’ve never ridden a wave.
“A common misconception is that you have to be in shape when you get here, and that you have to have balance when you come in here,” Fish said. “But really, you dont have to have anything. We just request that you have an open mind and a positive attitude, and the rest will really take care of itself.”
And they’re not just doing one workout. With eight different classes, they’ve got something for everyone. “We’ve got cardio and strength, we’ve got all strength, we’ve got circuits, yoga,” explained Fish. “We’ve got a little bit of everything.”
Ready to test the water? City Surf Fitness is making it easy, and offers your first class free of charge.
After your fist time hopping on, it’s easy to get hooked on hanging ten in North Texas. Fish said that people keep coming back. “Anyone who walks in the door will instantly feel the family dynamic from all of our members that we currently have,” Fish said. “That’s probably the number one compliment that we get.”
